Last week, the UW-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences began welcoming students to campus with orientation and other activities for new and returning students.
The first CALS undergraduate students to arrive on Aug. 29 were students in CALS QuickStart, a summer program designed to prepare incoming CALS freshman to succeed in college. Dorm move in for all UW-Madison students started Aug. 30.
The first day of classes was Sept. 8. More than 525 new undergraduates are expected to join CALS this fall.
The college captured photos of the events and back-to-school activities that took place as part of the university’s “Wisconsin Welcome” program.
